Miami Vs. Maryland Recap: Hurricanes Give The Game Away To Terps In Final Two Minutes

The Miami Hurricanes fell to 7-6 in the ACC on Tuesday night, losing 75-70 to the Maryland Terrapins in College Park, Md. The Canes led for much of the second half before a meltdown on the offensive end in the final two minutes. Miami lead 76-71 with two minutes to go, but a series of turnovers gave the game away to the Terps, who hit their free-throws down the stretch to even the score and then ice the game.

The Terps have had trouble against some of the league's big men this season and Miami's Kenny Kadji had a big game on the interior for the Canes. Kadji finished with 16 points and eight rebounds. But Reggie Johnson had a quiet game for Jim Larranaga, scoring just three points on one of five shooting. The Canes dominated the Terps on the glass in the first half, but Maryland out-hustled Miami and had an eight-rebound advantage when it was over. Miami had no answers on the offensive end when it mattered most.

Looking to make a push for the NCAA tournament, the Canes must come up big against a ranked Florida State team at home on Sunday evening.

Miami Vs. Maryland Score Update: Canes Dominate The Glass For 4-Point Halftime Lead

After one half in College Park, the Miami Hurricanes lead the Maryland Terrapins 35-31. The Canes trailed for much of the first half until a big run over the final ten minutes put them in front heading into the locker room. Miami held Maryland to just 22 percent from behind the arc to keep Mark Turgeon's club from going on a big run.

The Canes went on an 14-1 run at the under eight timeout and took their first lead of the game with just over six minutes remaining in the half. It was sparked by a personal 8-0 run led by Malcolm Grant, who hit from long-range and the free-throw line to put the Canes on top. Miami dominated Maryland on the interior, out-rebounding the Terps by seven. Kenny Kadji and the enormous Reggie Johnson did the Canes' work on the glass.
